Kent Lions clubs cooperate to help fund defibrillator
Two Kent Lions clubs recently got together to help a village organisation install a
defi brillator for use by the community.
Hodsoll Street and Ridley Village Hall is on the boundary of the areas of two Lions clubs
popular monthly ‘Big Breakfast’ -
hall’s maintenance and improvement.
Earlier in the year (at a ‘Big Breakfast’) Swanley Lions found out that the Committee
were keen to install a defi brillator for the village to be available 24/7 in a refurbished
phone box outside the hall. But they were £500 short of their target.
As the hall’s catchment includes both clubs’ areas, Swanley approached Darenth Valley
Lions with the proposal -
So on Saturday 7 April Swanley President Lion Steve Gray presented £500 on behalf of
the two clubs to Village Hall Chairman Ian Maxwell -
Swanley and North Downs Lions have also funded three defi brillators in Swanley and
